Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a opaque dark brown color. There was a tinge of ruby to it. There was a wisp of a tan head that didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a nice nose. Chocolate, roastiness, and a hint of earthiness. The taste is very good. Chocolate, roasted malts and biscuit. More toward medium bodied. Touch of dryness to the finish. Nice.

Sample at the brewery 1/25/2014. Ruby red leaning on brown color. Nose is earthy, dirty English malts and burnt sugar. No doubt the brewer uses English malts in this beer. The Earthy malts are the main base of the flavor with light spice and also a trace of dirty dish water. I have a feeling something is unclean in this brew. I mentioned to the bartender that the tap line maybe dirty. Or maybe after all these years of drinking, I still don’t enjoy English Strong Ales. It tasted like it somebody ringed out the bar towel into my beer. Perhaps some English Ales go after this type of thing. Something is off here.

on draft at the brewery, this one was neat, very roasty and thick but with a sweet body. Not highly drinkable and a nice roasty brew nonetheless

Cask. Moderate to heavy roasted grain for the malt, light herbs for the hops, faint soap for the yeast, with notes of honey, red wine, toffee and a hint of anise. Head is small, bubbly, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear red/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a flat carbonation and dry in the finish. Pretty complex in aroma, a little weak in flavor, I imagine the abv is around 6%, this beer is an easy drinker. My classification of style as an English Strong Ale is my best guess.
